UMT360 for SharePoint 2013 – Cumulative Update 5

Written by admin on June 10th, 2016 at 8:35 am

We are pleased to announce the release of the UMT360 for SharePoint 2013 (UMT360 v4.1) – Cumulative Update 5 / CU5. Cumulative Updates include all previously released public updates and private hotfixes. We strongly recommend that any patch and release is validated in a non-production environment first before being applied to production environments.

Here’s the list of fixes and improvements addressed:

  • Core Financial Capabilities
    • Added the ability to recall a Change Request in a Pending status
    • Enabled multi-currency functionality for users with the View Budget permission assigned
    • The next opened financial period is now loaded after approving or submitting a reporting period, instead of maintaining the current period when automatic progression is enabled for the Global Template
    • Added a new permission for managing the Financial Timeline of an entity
    • Added the ability to select Allocation Centers that have values in either the current financial period, or across all periods
    • Added the ability to hide optional financial metrics columns
    • Addressed issues with the Export to Excel option only including values for the current financial period rather than all periods displayed in the financial grid
    • The Create and Review Change Request buttons are now always enabled if there’s at least one Financial Dimension of type Budget in execution
    • Cropping the Timeline for an entity in execution now creates a Pending Change Request, rather than a Draft one
    • Added more granular permissions for viewing and managing Change Requests
    • Added a new Global Option which allows to select whether forecast will be overwritten upon saving or approving Actuals
  • Other
    • The Toggle All option (and Allocation Centers) are no longer checked automatically if no selection was done in previous stages
    • Addressed issues around saving Advanced Settings for SharePoint document libraries on sites that leverage UMT360 functionalities
    • Enabled the Workflow Visualization web part for users with the View Items permission
    • Added separate workflow activities for applying only Transitions or Validations
    • Added the ability to configure column header labels for Portfolio Center
    • UMT360 now allows for transitioning to a new workflow stage without having a financial timeline defined for all Enterprise Financial Types for entities
